Re: erratic touch pad

You can change that in the driver settings. If you bring up the system notification tray their should be a program to adjust the touchpad in there. Snayptics or some such on most HP's. If that does not work reload the driver from the recovery manager and update the system bios.

Re: erratic touch pad

I have just purchased a Probook 4520s, and the touchpad is un-usable.

 

I am in the habit of using my index finger to move the cursor, then use my thumb to click the buttons. So my thumb is normally resting on the left button.

 

But the button is now part of the touch-pad. So my thumb is also moving the cursor, erratically. When I left- or right-click, the cursor sometimes moves away from the button.

 

Is there a way to disable the button area from the touchpad area? Or do I have to re-learn the way I use the computer??

Re: erratic touch pad

My year old HP was stolen which is too bad cause I loved it.  My new one is going back because the new one piece touchpad is unusable.  Thank goodness for Costco's 90 day return policy.  Sorry HP, looks like I'm getting a Dell.
